Animation devlog: Polishing last time’s stuff & building the train set.
The tentacles members are artists and creatives who want to share ideas and get help from each other. Maybe you'd like to use your voice on a Tentacles cartoon, or suggest some jokes and edits to an in-progress script? Perhaps you've got a chapter of your next novel you'd like us to all take a look at or need someone to act in your film next week?
Members posts are spoiler-heavy, so we require a log-in to see more than the summary, and hide them from the main page.

You'll be able to read right away, and we'll activate your posting ability just as soon as we can.
